Hello. I don't have an external webcam, I'm using the laptop integrated web cam. The test for the exam was ok. Do  I really need the external webcam?

Yes, absolutely.

"Webcam: One external webcam, even if your laptop has one built-in, with at least a 1m cable."

I was wondering if I can use, for booting RedHat's Special OS, a Mac equipped with the M1 chip. The doubt came from the fact that, in the requirements mail that I've received, I've read the following string

 

  • Computer: You will need a computer with a single active monitor. Red Hat supports many Intel compatible X86_64-bit architecture computers.

In the network setting, my wifi is detected and it shows connected, but the exam environment keeps says "Network does not appears to be configured".

And I also tried the wire connection, it shows Connected - 100 Mb/s under Wired tab in Network page, but I still get "Network does not appears to be configured".

Please advise how to resolve this.

Hi,

I do have access to the internet locally.
The same wifi I use everyday. And I also confirmed the wired connection
worked fine with the laptop in Windows before booting from USB.

Cheers,

Hi @MollyC ,

The remote exam environment attempts to connect/ping to 'https://rhie-poa.redhat.com', to determine internet connectivity. This is the application interface where you are connected to the exam proctor.

The "Network does not appears to be configured" error is displayed when there is no response to the above URL.
Please check if your ISP or firewall has restrictions to access this URL.

Edit: It appears this system is offline for maintenance. Please try again in a few hours and it should connect to the compatibility test page.

Regards,

Thanks for looking into this.

Is  'https://rhie-poa.redhat.com' still offline for maintenance?

I tried the older USB image, network is fine but sound test fails in compatibility test. I rebooted several times to adjust the the volume of speaker and microphone, but can't get it work.

Hi @MollyC ,

It was only offline for a couple of hours on Sunday. Do you still have the same error?
Regarding the sounds, perhaps the sound card is not recognized by the remote exam OS. Can you try plugging in a wired headphone and give it a shot?

Hi,

how do I create/connect to the virtual machines in the exam? All this time I was practicing with VirtualBox on Windows since this is what was used in the course I was learning with.

There were no mentions about settign up VMs in the exam objectives (on the RedHat site)

Do I get different options of virtualization software to use during the exam? Or do I just get credentials to already set up VMs.

Regards,
